    Very nice! Looks like large blossoms on this Oncidium. Is it an Odontoglossum now placed in the Oncidium species?

    Now I have another Oncidium I want! Maybe if I can get rid of the black spots on the leaves of the ones I already have.

    Don't worry overly much about that. Many of the oncs seem to be prone to such -- particularly if one doesn't use all the strong poisons that greenhouses do.

    Great color, and looks like a healthy plant.

    Originally registered as Colmanara Wildcat, later changed to Odontocidium Wildcat, and more recently Oncostele Wildcat. It was never just Oncidium. 'Bloodshot' is apparently a clonal name. Ons. Wildcat 'Bloodshot'.

    When it was first registered as Colmanara it had Miltonia, Oncidium and Odontoglossum ancestors. Now the Miltonia has been changed to Oncidium, and the Odontoglossums have been changed to Oncidium or Rhynchostele.
